Hidden treasure

Really unsure how we found this place. We were just wandering around York late in the evening and spotted it. Was not a disappointment one bit. Having already eaten earlier I just had a starter but my girlfriend went for a lamb shank from the specials board. May have changed my mind and stolen... read more

Came here as a group of 6 and we were very well looked after. We had some well presented starters and the mains were just as delightful-including one dish that came with an ice shot glass of drink! In the end my husband and I opted for a steak and red wine deal and the steaks were lovely too. The... More

Perfect from start to finish. The food was superb and a lovely atmosphere. Staff are attentive without being intrusive. We also had the added surprise of witnessing a proposal.....beautiful......certainly a visit to remember. It is definitely one to visit while in York.

By far the best restaurant I've come across for ages. Brilliant location, atmosphere, staff service and the most fantastic food. It felt special to be there and you were made to feel special. Well done!

This was my third visit here after a gap of a few years. It is not easy to get in here (or used not to be) so you need to plan ahead. For the price, this is some of the best food you will taste, served in historic York by friendly people who own and run it. Some other reviews... More

Me and my husband ate here on Saturday night. The one thing that stood out is the lovely lady who served us, she was very polite and made us feel welcome. The food was lovely I had the lamb shank and my husband had steak. All the food was nicely presented and has that special touch. Would eat here again... More

Down a little alleyway, almost to the end, open the food on the left and enter a gourmets delight. We ate here for early dinner on a drizzly day, no booking, no problem. The staff were great, greeting us like old friends, seated us, took our coats and brought menus and water to our table. The menu sounded delicious and... More
